justice than a wrongful conviction. it destroys innocent lives. this was one of the worths in our city's history. in 1989, a woman was brutally attacked and raped jogging in central park. five black and lieu teen know teenagers were arrested and charged, convicted and spent years in prison. the real assailant confessed to the crime in 2002. it was a complete and total failure on the part of the justice system and media. this is the subject of a movie currently in theaters. >> i look back at the jogger case and wish i'd been more skeptical as a journalist. a lot of people didn't do their jobs. reporters, police, prosecutors defense lawyers. this was a proxy war being fought. these young men were the proxies for all kinds of other agendas. the truth and reality and justice were not part of it. >> joining me now was one of the directors of that film and perhaps the document arian of our time, ken burrs. it's an honor to have you here. >> thank you. it's my pleasure. >> how did you find this case and dive into it and what do you hope we take away? >> i found it through my daughter sarah burn
